Suicide bomber killed trying to attack police outpost near Dhaka airport

Dhaka [Bangladesh], Mar. 24 : A suicide bomber was killed while trying to carry out an attack on police outpost near Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport intersection in Dhaka on Friday evening.

Assistant Commissioner of police (Airport) Ruhul Amin Shagor confirmed that a suicide bomber attempted to attack the police box overlooking the airport intersection, reports the Dhaka Tribune.

He confirmed the attacker has been killed and no other casualties have been reported. He tried to blow up the outpost with explosives in his pocket or tied around his waist. The explosion, however, ripped through the right side of his waist. The suicide attack comes exactly a week after another bomb attack on the Rapid Action Battalion (RRAB) camp at Ashkona, barely half a kilometre away from tonight's site.
